L'animismo rivisitato e i dibattiti sulle 'ontologie indigene'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] The article analyzed the recent interpretation of the concept of animism in anthropology tying it to the development of the theoretical debate on so-called 'indigenous ontologies' and the concepts of person. From this point of view the work of Hallowell has inspired many of the strands of contemporary reflection on these issues. Among these strands, you may include: cognitive anthropology of Boyer, the phenomenological anthropology Ingold and Bird-David, the theory of the practice patterns of Descola, the theory of "Amerindian perspectivism" of Viveiros de Castro. After examining the characteristics and limitations of each of these strands, the article focuses on the latest in the debate on these topics.
